Knight Riders update brings Teutonic visitors to the post-apocalyptic MMOG Crossout, adding new content and German localization
Gaijin Entertainment and Targem Games have announced another major update for the vehicular combat MMOG Crossout, which is currently in late Closed Beta testing. Launching today, the new update is themed around a group of post-apocalyptic ‘Knights’ inspired by medieval Europe. Besides new matching content for use with the player-crafted vehicles, including weaponry, heraldic items and a new map, the auspicious occasion for the update is the long-awaited, official addition of the German localization into the game.
Together with the update, participants of the game’s Closed Beta Test are invited to join a special event exclusive to the occasion, featuring the wandering wagon train of the Knights, which call themselves the ‘Knechte’ – (the ‘Journeymen’ in German.) Here, players can earn the Knight’s own currency, Talers, by completing various missions for the equally enigmatic and Germanic visitors.
With Talers, players can then purchase suitable equipment from said visitors to further customize their own, crafted vehicles with. New parts include a mighty, oversized crossbow firing bolts of energy able to pierce even the strongest armor, genuine medieval cartwheels and various heraldic items to use as decoration. Rounded off with new, chivalric paint patterns and knightly portrait pictures, players will truly be able to ‘arm’ themselves as a proper Knight of Crossout’s Middle Ages!
The new equipment can then be put into full effect on the game’s new map, called ‘Fortress’, which is a blend of derelict, castle-esque stone structures and deserted concrete bunkers of the late modern times. Here, in the gloomy light of Sepulchre, players will fight for control over a Fort that oversees the area – and all the riches hidden in it.
The occasion for this festive event and major update is the release of the German-language version of Crossout, which adds German as the third interface language to the game, besides English and Russian. Now, players in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other German-speaking areas can finally enjoy the game in their native language, after localized news which has been available since the game’s announcement.
